“Building to a Higher Standard” is an apt tagline for Darland Construction, a company that strives for ongoing improvement in construction quality, relationships with clients and vendors, and responsiveness to changing times. According to Duke Matz, the company’s president, Darland’s quest for excellence has paid off. “We’re in a significant growth mode right now,” he said. “Over the last year, we’ve increased our volume by more than 30 percent.” Darland was founded in 1953 as an industrial construction firm but has expanded to encompass full-service retail establishments, healthcare facilities, offices, schools, and multifamily dwellings. Along the Dodge Street corridor, Darland has completed projects from downtown to UNMC, the Westroads area, Bank of the West Business Park, and Village Pointe. Recent accomplishments include the new Pinnacle Bank headquarters at 180th and West Dodge Road and the four-story, 100-unit Jones 13 apartments near the Old Market. Slated for completion in the fall 2017 is a massive 180,000-square-feet Truck Center Companies corporate headquarters and dealership on a 26-acre site at the corner of Interstate 80 and Highway 50.
